Starbase 1 was a Federation starbase administered by Starfleet. It was located one hundred au from Earth, near a planetary body. In the 2250s the starbase was home to over 80,000 Federation personnel.

During the Federation-Klingon War, the starbase was attacked and occupied by the House of D'Ghor. The battle resulted in the deaths of many members of Starfleet Command and at least three Starfleet starships were destroyed. Upon the brief arrival of USS Discovery, 274 Klingon life signs were detected on the station, as was a painted on crest of House D'Ghor. (DIS: "The War Without, The War Within")

The established distance from Earth places the starbase in the scattered disc of the Sol system. In this case, it may orbit one of the many icy dwarf planets found in this region of space. This would also be consistent with dialogue from "The War Without, The War Within", as Admiral Cornwell states that the Klingon raiders are in "Earth's backyard" and the admiralty later confirms that most of the fleet is now protecting Earth itself. Close inspection of the planet shown below the starbase seems to reveal features from Earth, such as Lake Michigan and the Florida peninsula. The latter must likely be regarded as an VFX error.
